    This race was super fun!!!! I loved the obstacles as it gave it a fun edge (and gave you a chance to catch your breath! :))
    One thing to think about is your phone if you want music. I personally love music while running so I just used one of those armband holders and it worked great even though I went down a water slide! If you want to get really muddy and wet Id consider not having phone at all, but just to let you know it’s definitley do-able.
